Argentine Court of Cassation dismisses Nisman cover-up allegations

Source: Buenos Aires Herald

The Court of Cassations has refused to take on the criminal complaint formulated by late AMIA lead investigator Alberto Nisman, in which he accused President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and other government officials of covering up those responsible for the deadly 1994 bombing.

The chamber is Argentina's highest judicial authority for appeals, leaving the docket composed by the former prosecutor in limbo after being dismissed on no less than three instances.

These were the Nisman cover-up claims that the Secretary-General of Interpol at the time, Ronald Noble, debunked three months ago already.

This is an election year in Argentina; and while Mrs. Kirchner herself isn't running, her populist Front for Victory (FpV) is polling at or near the top in opinion polls just six months out. The FpV is the closest thing to Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders in Argentina. They've been in office for 12 years, during which real GDP doubled, poverty and unemployment fell by 70%, social programs and unions were revitalized, and real wages in Argentina rose by 75%. And yes: right-wingers hate them with the same virulent racism Teahadists hate Obama and Democrats.

The Argentine right wing (sponsored by the likes of neocons, Netanyahoo, GOP megadonor and Caymans bankster Paul Singer, and other vulture funds) has nevertheless been playing tag with this fable ever since, going from one Ken Starr-like prosecutor to another in the hope of keeping this going. This Appeals Court dismissal was their last real chance.

Definitely something we on DU can relate to given the never-ending GOP witch hunts against the Clintons and Obamacare.
